Petaloo Color Me Crazy & Ranger Ink Mini Wreath

When I saw the Petaloo Col­or Me Crazy Chip­board Fairies (1581–004) I knew I had to make a lit­tle some­thing for my nieces to hang in their room. So I decid­ed on a door hang­er. I tore two long strips of nat­ur­al muslin and wrapped them around a 3″ Sty­ro­foam wreath until the entire wreath was cov­ered. I then attached the end of the muslin to the back of the wreath using fab­ric adhe­sive.

Next, I want­ed to add just a lit­tle word­ing here and there on the muslin so I inked my Per­fumery stamp with Archival Ink ~ Cof­fee and ran­dom­ly stamped the words here and there around the wreath. I did­n’t use an acrylic block to stamp the words. I just held the stamp with two fin­gers and rolled the stamp onto the muslin. I like the you get when doing this as the stamped image ends up look­ing more ran­dom this way.

I picked flow­ers from the Mul­ber­ry Flow­ers Mini Can­ter­bury Assort­ment (1575–000) and the Cot­ton Paper Flow­ers Med/Minis (1533–000) and col­ored them using Dylu­sions Ink Spray in Calyp­so Teal, Lemon Zest and Bub­blegum Pink. Once the flow­ers dried I applied a small amount of Dia­mond Stick­les to the cen­ter of the Calyp­so Teal and Bub­blegum Pink flow­ers.

I altered the Col­or Me Crazy Chip­board Fairy (1581–004) using Tim Holtz Adiron­dack Col­or Wash ~ But­ter­scotch and Per­fect Pearls Mist ~ Bis­cot­ti. Once the sprays dried I applied a light coat of Dia­mond Stick­les on top of the wings.

Using fab­ric adhe­sive I then attached the flow­ers and fairy to the wreath, cre­at­ing a 3D col­lage style group­ing. To fin­ish the col­lage arrange­ment I placed sev­er­al Maya Road Green Leaf Trin­ket Pins among the Col­or Me Crazy flow­ers.

Tomor­row, the tuto­r­i­al to recre­ate the project below will be fea­tured on the Petaloo Blog. Make sure you check it out. Today, I’ll leave you with a few sneak peeks.
